How to customize your crochet St Patrick’s gnome?

There are so many ways to create your own unique crochet leprechaun. For example, you can start by changing the colors of the gnome. Later you can change the braids or the outfit!

A few of the eager followers from our Facebook group have made their st paddy’s leprechaun gnome already using the pattern of January’s crochet gnome. Why not change the hat? Use one of the previous hat patterns and add some more crochet shamrock appliques to it.

Crochet St Patrick’s day gnome pattern details:

Materials:

  • worsted weight yarn- Bernat Premium 100% Acrylic, 7.0 oz/198 g, 360 yds/ 329 m solid colors-

  • Bernat Premium khaki green 50 gr, dark green 30 gr, orange 20 gr, black 15 gr, and a small amount of Beige for the nose and yellow for the belt’s buckle.

  • crochet hook size 4mm/ US crochet hook size G

  • poly fiber fill for stuffing

  • a piece of cardboard around 15cm square/6-inch square for the base

  • tapestry needle

Special notes:

  1. The pattern is written in US crochet terms.

  2. The pattern is worked in continuous rounds.

  3. If you are crocheting loosely, use a smaller hook so your work will be tighter and the stuffing won’t be visible.

  4. When stuffing the body- stuff it well so it will stay in shape, but don’t overdo it.

  5. The leprechaun gnome’s hat is crocheted separately but you can sew it onto the body as we did for the crochet leprechaun gnome boy.

Measure the body’s base

Before we continue, we need to measure our base and cut the cardboard. My base is 10cm/ 4 inches wide. Place your crochet piece in the center of the cardboard and use a pen to draw a circle. Draw the circle around the crochet piece and then cut it. While cutting the cardboard, cut it a bit smaller, so it will not stick out.

Crochet leprechaun gnome’s skirt:

with khaki color

We worked round 18 in BLO which left the front loops of the stitches unworked, creating a line in which we will make the skirt.

Rnd 1: Insert your hook in any stitch of that round and pull a loop, CH 2, 2 DC in next stitch, *DC in first, 2 DC in next* rep all around, SS to join

Rnd 2-3: CH 3, DC in each stitch around, SS to join. FO. Finish with the perfect finish method for smooth edging. Check the perfect finish tutorial here.

I didn’t give you the final count of stitches at the end of the round as it doesn’t matter. The most important thing for the skirt is to make increases in the first round so it will curl. If you want a more curly skirt you can make 2 DC stitches in each stitch in the first round.
